Have I mentioned how bad I am at jewelry designing? I am. Unabashedly so. I really appreciate jewelry makers who magically whip these poor little beads and findings into something beautiful.
So I wasn't really surprised to receive a rejection letter from the Bead Star staff thanking me for my entry of these earrings, but telling me that I was not selected as a finalist. I thought they were rather sweet in a watermelon-y way. And I really like the unique leaves, that I built on the wire and used to string the earrings together.
So now I'm debating whether to pop them into my lampwork glass bead Etsy shop, or keep them for myself. Guess you might need to check the shop and you'll know what I decided.
